Penguin vintage classics wallpaper

I received my latest copy of UK Elle Decoration magazine (my most favourite magazine ever) and inside I spied this fabulous new wallpaper by Osborne and Little.

Osborne & Little have teamed up with Penguin to produce this vintage classics 'Library' wallpaper - the collage style design features literary classics by Orwell, the Bronte sisters and DH Lawrence.  Love, love, love!!

Update:  This wallpaper reminds me of the fabulous papered door at Lark, made from collaged vintage 'Ladybird books'.  (see original post here) Such a cute idea!    


Animal Farm

 'Animal Farm' children's bedlinen design

The last time I sat down to write a blog post it was the end of summer, and it was hot.  And now in a few short weeks Autumn has well and truly arrived here in Kyneton.  The leaves are turning yellow and dropping from the tree's, mornings are cooler, and my hoodie has made it out from the back of the wardrobe for snuggly evening comfort.

I've been flat out working on some freelance projects, and overseas visitors have also arrived to visit us the grandson, so we have been out-and-about visiting local shops and cafes, markets, and seeing the sights of the Macedon Ranges. 

At one local market we visited, a lady was selling some children's clothes and toys that her son had grown out of.  As I walked passed I spotted some fabric I recognised - it was a children's bedlinen design I created about 3 years ago.  The design is called 'Animal Farm' and not surprisingly given the title, depicts some little farm animals.....cows, sheep, a hen and her chicks, a doggy, cat, duck and some piggies! 

I picked the quilt cover up for little Mr J, I'm not sure whether to save it for when he's a little older and in a big bed, or make him something out of the fabric.  Either way, it's nice for me to have one of my designs that I can use for him - and he might think he has a clever mummy one day!
